Practitioners // Researchers

It is frequently asserted that librarians do not use research findings when making decisions related to their professional practice. It is claimed that their decisions are based on little more that instinct or colleagues‘ opinions, and that as a result their decision making may be ill-informed and high-risk. It is further claimed that this situation indicates a ‚communication gap‘ between researchers and practitioners, and that this gap inhibits the maturation of librarianship, as many practitioners operate without an adequate understanding of the theoretical foundations to their practice.
